Dear ladies...
I address this to the ladies, because its a serious concern here in the organization. This is a hotel, we have locker rooms for changing and wash rooms. Here the ladies do not know how to upkeep the place. They paint the walls with kajal, liners and lips stick. The washrooms are really really bad!!They do not know how to dispose off things... Me as a trainer and the executive housekeeper have educated them on the issues, but then after a couple of days its back to square one. Putting them on papers and sticking is of no use, because we find them to write filth on the sheets pasted.
Kindly give me your ideas to stop this nonsense.
Thanks & Regards

A simple answer give them free tissue paper (a lot of it) to rub out the excess makeup.. so that they dont put it on to walls, lockers etc.. Regards, Ken

Make them monitors on a rotation basis. One each day.....
Monitors must either control the filth, or clean it themselves at the end of the day... Or somthing like that...
The key is to make them accountable...

Like it happens in Malls,
They used to put a cleaner or attendent in the changing rooms, or in locker rooms,
who can put an eye on such uncivic people. Or out of 8 hrs work, ask the lady workers if any, to devote some time in the locker rooms.
Job rotation or additional responsibility ... u know.
The moment anybody tries to spoil the cleanliness, they point out the offender.
Even a simple eyecontact can do the work.
Fine them, point out them before other people in locker rooms.
They'll never repeat the thing again.

I think you send them mail on regular basis and paste some posters on same wall which show does and
don'ttttttttttt. and observe it on regular basic and if you find somebody doing this mischeif tell them politely not to do this and instruct one house keeper to see the thing and stop them .

Dear Seema,

Plz read the moral of the below story, I am sure this will help you alot:

“A school head was alerted by the caretaker to a persistent problem in the girls lavatories: some of the girl students were leaving lipstick kisses on the mirrors. The caretaker had left notices on the toilet walls asking for the practice to cease, but to no avail; every evening the caretaker would wipe away the kisses, and the next day lots more kisses would be planted on the mirror. It had become a bit of a game. The head teacher usually took a creative approach to problem solving, and so the next day she asked a few girl representatives from each class to meet with her in the lavatory.

"Thank you for coming," said the head, "You will see there are several lipstick kisses in the mirrors in this washroom.."

Some of the girls grinned at each other.

"As you will understand, modern lipstick is cleverly designed to stay on the lips, and so the lipstick is not easy at all to clean from the mirrors. We have therefore had to develop a special cleaning regime, and my hope is that when you see the effort involved you will help spread the word that we'd all be better off if those responsible for the kisses use tissue paper instead of the mirrors in future.."

At this point the caretaker stepped forward with a sponge squeegee, which he took into one of the toilet cubicles, dipped into the toilet bowl, and then used to clean one of the lipstick-covered mirrors.

The caretaker smiled. The girls departed. And there were no more lipstick kisses on the mirrors.”

Best Regards,

Hi Seema,
You are lucky you dont have people who never even flush! Inspite of being called and asked to go back and flush.
One single thing you can use as a tool is "scare them"
a) Tell them that you have cams outside the rest room, that would observe the people who use the REST ROOM (not inside, but outside..)
b) End of the day if the housekeeping informs that there has been additional art work - then you will be calling all the ladies who used the rest room that day and they will have to CLEAN it by themselves. (esp ladies who carried their bag with them - u know, they take their make up kit along in their bag)
If they have their mouths wide open - just casually tell them "Oh this was the reaction when I saw your art work, and I am tired of doing that "OH MY GOD!!" thing for a while - and for a change - lets have the culprit do it ;-) "
It would work ....Hope so.. maybe..might be.
Also the lines by ARTI is definitely worth a try.
